The University Medical Center New Orleans, a resilient replacement for the hurricane-ravaged Medical Center of Louisiana, now stands as Southeast Louisiana's sole Level One Trauma Center. With 448 beds, it's the cornerstone of a thriving medical district, a vital resource for our city, and a refuge for the region's most critically injured patients.


Designed to pay homage to New Orleans' rich heritage and climate, it offers a modern twist on the city's distinctive character. Featuring plazas and reflecting pools reminiscent of traditional New Orleans gardens, it rekindles the connection with the enduring force of water.


We're honored that Richlite has been chosen as the solid surface for your countertops, helping create an environment that embodies resilience, culture, and progress. Thank you for entrusting us with this pivotal project.
